June 2009

Here's our Cloots today, looking every bit as handsome as when we last saw him. He certainly looks in better nick than, say, RPD, who informed me today he thinks he may have 'a mild case of Swine Flu', the symptoms of which are apparently 'a slight sore throat' and 'a very bad ankle'.
Poor Pony-girl is suffering, stuck in Oxford away from her beloved pony, taking exams and condemned to extra weeks away from home this summer doing a 'project'. She is not happy about this - but she is resigned to doing all it takes to get her degree so she can Free Cloots from his life of drudgery and buy him a fresh green field for his retirement.
I''ve been busy turning Cloots' story into a book. It's taken me rather longer than I hoped.
